EFQM Member Ambassadors

The EFQM Member Ambassador Programme


In 2018, we created a network of selected EFQM experts (EFQM Representatives, Assessors, etc.)  who are succesfully driving excellence within their own –EFQM Member- organisation, and who are willing to support EFQM by:

  • Promoting EFQM outside their own EFQM member organisation
  • Encouraging other organisations to become an EFQM member
  • (Re-) presenting EFQM and the EFQM approach within their own organisation, at events and in all kind of (social) media

If you would like to join our network of member organisations but don't know how...there is an EFQM Ambassador ready to share their experience and wisdom with you and to provide the answers to your questions about EFQM.

Already eleven EFQM experts have been identified throughout Europe and joined the EFQM Member Ambassador Programme and we expect to grow this group even more in the close future. If you would like to get in touch with an EFQM Member Ambassador in your region, please send an email to info@efqm.org.
